Description:

Early in life, Jill knew she wanted to become an entrepreneur but had no idea that she would have to include sales in her daily activities. She resisted until confronted with the fact that her vision could not be realized until she cast aside her negative perception of what sales entailed. After rising above the fear and focusing on learning the skills and techniques good sales requires, she made her living earning revenue from top companies. The beauty of gaining a clear understanding of a subject is that you are now qualified to share that knowledge with others which Jill does by way of her website and award winning books.
